The Cold-immediate prospective only
I am currently battling a cold that has run through the family. So while spending the night shivering with a 103 degree tempt gave me some time for thought. It interesting that even minor inconveniences like a cold can prevent you from thinking beyond the immediate discomfort. But it reminded me that what is important in life is rarely what the long term situation is but rather what your next decision/action will be. Tiger Woods did not set out to bang 12 waitresses but when it came to making the decision to sleep with the first one he failed to resist. I am going to keep this entry short simply because it hurts to type and think and breath and well do anything right now. Each step is important the twentieth step will handle it self. Be vigilant, be sensitive to the Holy Spirit and the rest will take care of its self.
1 Peter 5:8
Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.
2 Peter 3:17
Therefore, dear friends, since you already know this, be on your guard so that you may not be carried away by the error of lawless men and fall from your secure position.
Continue earnestly in prayer, being vigilant in it with thanksgiving;
